Precision Thermoformed Plastic Boot Assembly for the Automotive Industry

A client in the automotive industry came to us for a precision thermoformed plastic boot assembly that would cover and protect a convertible top when it was in the down position. The convertible boot and pin assembly are made from virgin capped ABS. The boot is formed on our 3 station rotary thermoformer. After the part is thermoformed, we CNC trim, debur and clean the assembly to complete the fabrication process. The boot assembly is then vinyl wrapped to meet automotive standards. Our high quality standards were met with in-process testing which included check fixture and radius inspections. On this project we worked to tightest tolerances of automotive OEM standards.
